    Can we sum purchase order Total with another field value?

    Asked by locomotivedisplaycases on December 16, 2015 at 09:55 AM

    I have tried looking through answers but cannot find a solution that will give me the calculation coding to achieve the below.

    On page 4 I am trying to create a field that displays the total order value which is the Order Requirements Product Total (Field A) and the Correct Shipping Option (Field B) added together, I hope you can help? 

    **Please note the postage value of £6.99 for UPS shipping was missing from this screen shot but has since been amended on my form

    I hope you can help, in what should be an easy solution. Thanks David

    Thank you for contacting us.

    The problem is that we cannot get a Total value of the Purchase Order field in order to display/manipulate it.

    As a workaround, you may consider making calculations with standard fields instead of the Purchase Order tool. In this case you will be able to show calculated value on another form page.

    1) How to perform calculation in the form.

    2) How to assign calculation value.

    3) How to pass a calculation to a payment field (optional in your case).

    Take a look at 'Calculated amount based on user selections and inputs' section of the next article to see it in action.
